The former St. Gabriel’s Retreat Center, a 25-acre property on Shelter Island’s Coecles Harbor, has finally been subdivided and put on the market, Newsday reported. The five-lot residential development, known as Pandion, has listed three of them priced at $2.495 million, $3.995 million and $8.75 million. The Corcoran Group’s Cee Scott Brown, listing agent for Pandion, told Newsday that the property could have accommodated more than 20 homes but that the owner deliberately sought to limit the number in order to preserve the site’s environmental integrity. St Gabriel’s, owned by the Passionist Fathers for more than a century, closed in 2009 and was sold to financier and part-time Shelter Island resident Richard Hogan, according to a 2018 story from The Real Deal. In September 2017, Shelter Island’s planning board approved a plan that would see Pandion include five homes and other facilities for the local community, such as a boathouse with a dock. [Newsday]
